One of the biggest challenges for health care providers today is getting patients to take the right medication and the right dose at the right time. Adheretech is a company out to make that much easier, thanks to new technology. Jo Stein, the founder and CEO of Adheretech, explains, "We make patented smart pill bottles that track and improve medication adherence in real time." Weill Cornell Medical Center is one of the many partners in the Smart Pill Bottle.
A 2008 study by the CDC points to 58 car-surfing deaths and more than 40 serious emergencies from mostly teens riding on top of a moving vehicle. One 15-year-old from Clovis, New Mexico, is lucky to be alive after an impulsive ride with friends could have, at the very least, changed her life forever. When you think of car-surfing, you might think of some crazy stunts on YouTube. But you don’t have to be standing on a moving car and speeding along a highway for this to be deadly.
Ten to 15 percent of women will experience postpartum depression after childbirth, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. But the postpartum blues is actually much more common, affecting as many as three out of four women after having a baby. The most common clues include crying with trouble sleeping, eating and making choices. I asked Dr. David Blann, an OB-GYN with Covenant Medical Group, how often he hears a new mother say she has had thoughts of hurting her child.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
